Quick Dish LA: Two Nights Taping of JASON SÁENZ’S 1-Hour Show THE WHEEL WORLD 6.8 & 6.14 at The Lyric Hyperion

June 8th and June 14th Bolivian-American comedian Jason Sáenz tapes his hit solo show, The Wheel World, at the Lyric Hyperion Theatre in Los Angeles. In The Wheel World, comedian Jason Sáenz tells the story of when he fell through a skylight onto a flight of stairs during a third date six years ago. This accident and the subsequent month-long battle against ​​spinal meningitis in the ICU left Sáenz paralyzed. 

The Wheel World presents all the grim and intimate details of becoming a paraplegic in Hollywood. Sáenz shares his struggles with grief, adapting to changes in wheelchair accessibility, accepting limitations in his new body, his wheelchair-bound TV roles, altering his perception of sex and manhood, accepting his new bathroom routines, accepting love, and finally, pursuing fatherhood. Jason’s previous performances of The Wheel World have regularly sold out and he’s back with special tapings at The Lyric Hyperion. The Wheel World is presented and written by Jason Sáenz and directed by Lauren Adams (Unbreakable Kimmy SchmidtGreener GrassModern Family).
